Fendi, bag bug innovator, is rolling out a new accessory for your handbag. WWD reports that Fendi stores will begin selling individual shoulder straps in November for Fendi's new "Strap You" collection. This is not an opportunity to get a piece of the brand at a bargain though, since each strap is going to retail for just under $1,000. Don't even think about how many non-Fendi bags you could get for the price of one shoulder strap.
The "Strap You" collection includes nine different styles, ranging from classic leather to exotic materials like python to straps with multi-colored studs. All the straps are two-tone and customers can choose between silver or gold hardware. The straps can also be monogrammed with your initials in two different font sizes. According to Style.com, the straps will attach to any Fendi bag or "any bag you own, really." See some of the infinite bag and shoulder strap combinations in Fendi's Resort 2016 lookbook.
